Lara A.

Syrian

Marhaba! My name is Lara and I’ll be sharing with you my passion for cooking authentic Middle Eastern, Syrian Cuisine. Cooking has been my greatest friend through the toughest times of my life. I was born and raised in Damascus, Syria but I had to leave home when I was 18 to search for a better life elsewhere. My journey towards freedom took me to places such as Turkey, Greece, and lastly, Portugal where I’ve now called Lisbon my home. I learned to cook on my travels by trying out different recipes in Arabic cuisine from Youtube. My mother is also my biggest inspiration; she was an amazing cook and I would often reminisce about the taste of her food and replicate them. Being away from home and having to be independent had inspired me to spend my time doing something I truly enjoy - cooking. Food in many ways has helped me to heal - it has allowed me to be proud of my culture and be at peace. I see cooking as a big love of mine - I’m passionate and ambitious to perfect my recipes and invent new ones! My goal is to one day own a restaurant but for now, I’m grateful and excited to have the opportunity to share with you all my special take on a variety of dishes inspired by the unique and rich flavours of the Middle East!
